I shot these photos the week before last just off of Abbot Kinney. If you travel to Los Angeles, then you must spend an afternoon along Abbot Kinney. The street is nestled in Venice Beach and is lined with restaurants and shops. My favorite restaurants are Gjelina and Willie Jane. Gjelina has some of the best pizza in town and I die for their mushroom toast. Willie Jane serves New Orleans style food with super yummy biscuits. Both spots have great patios too. I also like grabbing a cucumber mint lemonade at Lemonade while walking around; however, if you’re a coffee drinker then you should pop into Intelligentsia. The brunch at Salt Air and The Tasting Kitchen are top notch too. Abbot Kinney is the ideal street to window shop along. Beware of Urbanic Paper Boutique… it is the cutest stationary, card, and gift store. I spend way too much money there!
My boyfriend jeans were perfect for the laid-back vibes of Venice. My pair are very comfy but Nordstrom also has an amazing collection of other boyfriend jeans for summer. I’ve been wearing this white lace boho top by Rebecca Taylor on repeat lately. It’s feminine yet bohemian, which might be my perfect combination.
